Food Review: Cedarlane Garden Lasagna

Cedarlane Garden Lasagna ($4.75) nearly topped the list Healthiest Supermarket Foods complied by Women's Health. Since this lasagna came so highly recommended, I had to give it a try since it's made with organic ingredients, is low fat, and contains no trans fat.

That stats are good, but want to know how it tastes? Then

.

When I first opened the package, the meal reminded me of Amy's Vegetable Lasagna, but the positive comparison really ends there. The Cedarlane Lasagna didn't contain as much cheese, and the cheese is not your typical ricotta but nonfat cottage cheese. That must be why it contains much less fat. Unfortunately, it also contains less flavor. The tomato sauce was zesty and sweet but even though this lasagna supposedly contains zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, bell pepper, all I could taste were the big pieces of chewy spinach. If you're a fan of cooked spinach, you might like this Cedarlane lasagna. I definitely appreciate that it's low in calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but my taste buds say to stick with Amy's Vegetable lasagna.

Also keep in mind that one box of Cedar Lane is two servings as opposed to Amy's being one serving for roughly the same size.

I tried it and thought it tasted good! Not the most flavorful thing ever, but a standard lasagna flavor. I liked the tomato sauce.

Don't get me wrong I LOVE Amy's Frozen Food. Espcially their Pizza! But a lot of the time, not ALL the time, their products seem to be high in fat and calories...I do LOVE their Sheperd's Pie with mashed potatoe crust, is there more of their food that are low calorie and tasty? In my town we only have 3 areastores that carry Amy's (and other brands like it's products) andI live in deeeep Southern Illinois, where most people shop at Tom's Mad Pricer.

I would guess that it's fairly hard for a lot of people with busier schedules than you...not to mention this is a food that people eat because of the nutrition info on the box, values that would be hard to match if you created your own.

That pale, flaccid (ooh I love this word) tray of food is meant to be a winner? God is this what people have come to when it comes to food? :( As cheap as veggies are, that thing should be stuffed with them! And as usual, the picture looks about 8,823 times better than the actual product. Blergh. Last weekend I decided to make a big tray of my own lasagna. Its crazy that I have never made homemade lasagna before, because I do like to cook. Sure, it took a couple of hours. And you bet it has loads of cheese in it, and meat and tons of herbs and sauces, and olive oil..all real food. All from scratch, and enough that I froze 4 portions! I make my own cream of tomato soup now too, and its far better than anything from a can...it takes a wee bit of time, sure, and working full time means I sometimes need to plan ahead. But the results are worth it. I much rather enjoy real foods and just be aware of what else I eat, or exercise, than to pay good money for something that looks so...wussy and unappetising. Sorry, FitSugar, but I will always vote for "real food but less of it and a bit of exercise" over these uninspiring, "Make someone else rich" prepackaged "healthy" meals. :)

I never did like using cottage cheese instead of ricotta in my lasagna. It gives it a weird texture. I don't eat lasagna often, but when I do eat it, I like the REAL stuff.

The nutrition info listed here is different than the nutrition info listed in the "healthiest supermarket foods" slideshow . . . by a lot. Is there a mixup?
